This recipe was given to me by a colleague who is a close friend of mine. She used to bring this delicious and comforting dessert to the office. I am so glad when she shared her recipe with me. To her sharing is a blessing :) This jelly pudding is not just delicious , its soft and smooth texture gives comfort to me when I was having poor appetite. The texture is between a pudding and jelly. The milky lychee flavor is subtle and it is addictive. I can gobble up two or three pieces at one go :p Yea, very very addictive especially when it is chilled. This is great for after dinner dessert and for taking to parties.
love the smooth and soft texture
